"giving up" moments
Frustration. The brick wall that we all hit, then back up from, work through, and knock down.
My "giving up" moments:
-Those first weeks when I was constantly wet and sticky from breasts that leaked out of control. Whenever she started sucking on one breast, the other would let loose with a waterfall that soaked everything around it.
-When my right breast grew much larger than my left.
- When I felt like I had been sitting on the couch feeding her for two weeks straight with no break.
-When I had to wake up multiple times in the middle of the night, and he got to sleep for 8 hours straight.
-Pumping 9 times a day trying to build up my milk supply (for 3 months!) when my special needs child was still resisting breastfeeding.
-Not having anywhere "proper" to breastfeed out in public.
-Carrying that damn heavy pump to and from work on the bus every day.
We all have our moments. And we all work past them. What was yours?
